AIRASIA X will launch its second service to South Korea on July 15, linking Kuala Lumpur to Busan with the first direct flight between the two cities.
The service will commence with four-times-weekly flights on an Airbus A330-300 aircraft, offering 12 Premium Flatbed seats and 365 economy seats.
AirAsia X currently flies to Seoul, while AirAsia Japan already runs flights from Tokyo to Busan.
To mark the start of the new service, AirAsia X is offering a discount on tickets for the new route. Economy fares start from RM199 (US$65) and for Premium Flatbed seats, RM699, one way.
Fares are open for bookings from April 17-28 for travel between July 15, 2013 and April 30, 2014.
Alternatively, passengers may opt for Fly-thru services from Busan, which allows them to tap AirAsia’s feeder network from 88,900 won (US$80) to countries such as Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and vice versa. The same booking and travel period applies for the Fly-Thru promotion.
